New missile corvette joins Iranian Navy

A new missile warship, dubbed Konarak, formally joined Iranian Navy in the Southeastern waters of the Sea of Oman on Monday.

During a ceremony attended by Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi , the Iranian Navy’s fleet in the Sea of Oman took delivery of a made-in-Iran missile launcher at a naval base in Iran’s southeastern port city of Konarak, told FNA.

The move is undertaken in a bid to strengthen and improve the combat capabilities of the naval force of the country, which in the recent years has increased its presence in high seas to secure naval routes and protect vessels against pirate attacks.
